Chicken-Fried News: Fly-by romance


  • Bigstock

An Oklahoma City woman pleaded guilty in late March to public lewdness after local “video vigilante” Brian Bates used a drone to record her having sex with a 76-year-old man in a parked vehicle.

Amanda Zolicoffer, 27, was sentenced to a year in prison, reported online crime website The Smoking Gun. The case against the aged co-defendant, Douglas Blansett, is pending. The pair was arrested in December.

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) caught wind of the unusual case and reached out to Bates for comment. And just in case BBC reporters were unfamiliar with the Internet or how to perform Google searches, he said, “I’m sort of known in the Oklahoma City area” — especially after this case.

His drone hovered over Blansett’s Ford F-150 and captured video of the pair making whoopee while parked in a deserted tire yard.

“Zolicoffer’s pants were off and the driver appeared to be having sexual intercourse with Zolicoffer,” an Oklahoma City Police affidavit shows.
